1. The Hull

You can’t miss the artwork that Miami artist David  “Lebo” Le Batarde designed across the bow of the ship. Evocative of South Beach and the Caribbean, its main feature is a giant mermaid.

2. Aqua Park

One of the finest aqua parks afloat, with five unique water-slides, including one that seems to loop the loop and a frightening free-fall slide.

3. The Waterfront

The open area on Deck 8, right on the water is unobstructed by lifeboats. The outdoor venue is lined  with restaurants, bars and places to chill.

NCL Gateway4. Social media

Standalone kiosks dotted around the ship allow passengers to take a smiling selfie and post it to  their Facebook or Twitter page to make friends  at home feel jealous.

5. Fireworks

Every sailing has an eco-friendly firework show at sea  once a week. Finally, a cruise line that can match  Disney when it comes to lighting up the night.

6. Ice Bar

Yes, a bar made of ice; so cold you have to wear a parka! Don’t worry, every customer is provided with one.

7. The Bathrooms

Happily, after the questionable split bathrooms on Norwegian Epic, the line has returned to a normal  design. The size is impressive – premium cabins get a double-sized shower.

8. SportsPlex

A three-storey outdoor area with the largest ropes course at sea, full size basketball court, mini-golf and a plank that extends eight feet over the side of the ship – the most photographed experience aboard!

9. Entertainment

Whether it’s West End musical Legally Blonde, hot dance show Burn The Floor, duelling pianos, a rockin’ blues band, or the first-of-a-king Illusionarium, this ship has enough to keep everyone entertained throughout the night.

10. O’ Sheehan’s

The perfect place to wind down – or start your day.  This round-the-clock venue is our home from- home,  with sports on TV, the arcade, darts, selection of beers  and overlooking a two-storey movie screen.
